His parents are supportive of his career path.
A_Seagull’s name originates from a Half Life 2 DeathMatch developer glitch that allowed users to apply a cheat code to allow them to play as anything in the game. He chose to become a seagull and enjoyed flying around. His name is therefore a tribute to that jaunt.
A_Seagull has been gaming since he was a child. He has always had a competitive streak, which is why he was already playing in teams on Half Life 2 DeathMatch when he was 12. In late 2008, he started playing Team Fortress 2 and proceeded to participate in those tournaments for about seven years. He took a year of from gaming when he was sixteen to focus on college, but then continued even while he was completing his college degree.
Upon finishing his college course, he transferred to Washington State University. That was also around the time that the Beta version of Overwatch was released, and he decided to try playing and streaming it. His stream channel grew exponentially, to the point that he approached his parents with the possibility of attempting a career as a competitive Overwatch player and streamer. Then, with their consent he took a break from college to try out full-time streaming and hasn’t looked back since. He has since retired from professional tournaments in order to focus on his streaming.
A_Seagull has a round, clean-shaven face. He has light blonde hair that he keeps short. His eyes are dark brown and he wears thin-rimmed, black, rectangular glasses.
His exact number of subscribers is unknown, but is estimated at over 10,000. That means that he likely earns at least $25,000 USD a month from subscribers alone, excluding sponsorships, advertising and tips.
